  1. Congrats!
    Your new website is great! I love the new feel! Just wished I could switch back to the old mode once in a while for some nostalgia though! ;P
    Thank you for not forgetting to re-post my Ain Jalut battle here! I wish I could contribute more, tbh. But I’m pursuing higher studies in Science atm and am unable to find any time for making those intense-labor demanding ppts that you make. 🙁
    Anyways, I wish you luck and may your website keep expanding in terms of popularity! ^_^

  2. How do you make these videos? I understand how you use powerpoint, but how to you make the units and terrain and such? Great site! Love the fact that you included the battle of Torvioll, since I currently living in the city nearest to where the battle took place…
    Anyway, I simply would like to know how to make videos like this myself!
    Thanks in advance!

    • The ones in video format are just a screen capture of the powerpoint animations, which are made of simple lines and shapes with added animation effects to make them move. If you wish to learn more about making powerpoint animations, shoot me an email, but I am certain that using flash or other software is probably much easier to get started.

      The Battle of Torvioll was an important one to do for me as it was requested by one of my earliest supporting fans. I am glad others enjoyed it as well!
